There will be a feeling lingering among many fans that India were found wanting against the moving ball yesterday. Perhaps the mentioned factor is not that much of a factor as compared to the batsmen throwing their wickets away. The pitch has bounce and seam movement but you need to apply yourself in order to flourish in the middle. It is the mindset which matters. Mental adaptability is of utmost importance and the visitors have failed to put that into effect so far. South Africa, on the other hand, have been persistent with their plans and have come out on top. Vernon Philander has been probing away in the fourth-stump channel while Dale Steyn has provided him good company. They are likely to stick to what they have been doing because it has been reaping dividends so far. However, the good thing for the tourists is that the pair of Cheteshwar Pujara and Rohit Sharma is still out there and they are pretty much capable of pulling the initiative back. Will the No. 1 Test side prove their mettle in testing conditions? Or will the hosts run away with the show? Expect a mouth-watering contest. (LIVE SCORECARD | DAY 1 HIGHLIGHTS)
